The operating system often called "Linux" (which is in fact a kernel that can run alongside with GNU) is actually the GNU system that he started in 1984 so as to bring freedom to the users. The following freedoms are:
0. Freedom of use for whatever you want.
1. Freedom to study the code.
2. Freedom of (re)distribution.
3. And the most important: Freedom for modifying the source code to suit your specific needs or fixing it.
